beginning of this new year we would

the narrow view of the year wv have
lived together In harmony or consider

The pastor's relation to the church

of course. 1 view the pastoral illa

The pastor went on to tell of the

AFTER CITY OFFICES.
Candidates for City Clctk, Solicitor,
Select Chairman, etc., Ate Hust
ling for Support.
('onslderable speculation Is being In
dulged In In olllelal circles as to who
the ollloers of the various niuiMelp.it
bullion will be. The c.ounclhi, poor boutd
and bnard of health reorganize on the
llrst Monday in April, while the reor
ganization of the school board will not
occur until the llrst of June.
The light for th city clerkship, the
most ardent struggle of all, goes mer
rily on. .V. L. Moon, the Incumbent,
and Fred Thomas are each exerting
every effort to tie up a majority- nf
voles, ten b.'lng needed to elect. Hoth
sides claim the advantage, but. ns a
matter of fact, the members still un
pledged make the re.Milt decidedly tin
eel tain, ami In fact, the llnnl may
be the election of a "datk liorhe."
Closely connected with the city
clerk's light Is that for city solicitor.
It. I). Stuart, who has held the olllce
for the two years past Is a candidate
for iv-ch'ctlou and ex-Mayor O'Neill
Is also after the olllce. II. C lltitler's
name has been mentioned but that gen.
tleiuan has made no effort to secure
the position. The outlook Is uncor.
Quit1 a light Is also being put up
for the chairmanship of common coun
cil. The Kepubllcans have settled on
Hubert Whltlleld. the now member from
th" Tlilid, while the Democrats are
rallying around Alex. Kennedy, of the
Fourth ward, who Is chairman of the
present organization. in the upper
branch the chairmanship will probably
fall to either J. O. Davis or .!. V.
Anthony F. Loftus. the piosctit deik
ol the common council, whoso wnik
has been highly satisfactory, will
have, from the present outlook, no
opponent. He would, at any rate, be
a hard man lo bout, as he Is strongly
entrenched In the good graces of the
councllmen. It is said. also, that Sec-
i clary Kvans ami Sanitary Olllcer
.Mollltt will have uu opposition.
On the poor board. 11 ('. Wlllluins
will probably succeed I. A. Hlvell
liuig as secretary and John McCain
will bo made treasurer, to siucoed .1.
F. Lynch. It Is Mr. .Morgan's tin n
to b hulrmnn. but whether or not h"
will take the olllce remains to bo soon.
Tne lesult ot the reorganization of the
school board Is a conipbtely unknown
iii:intity. at this time.
